Winning Wrongful Death Cases
Learn how a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer can maximize your recovery and put you on the path to healing and recovery after the loss of a loved one.
Life and relationships are the most precious things we have. Parents, children, and grandparents can enjoy so many great things together here in Greater Los Angeles, whether it’s a trip to Disneyland or the beach, family holidays, a graduation, birthday, or anniversary, a work accomplishment, and everything in between.
For all that to be taken away by the acts of a negligent person can be earth-shattering for those left behind. A wrongful death leaves us asking so many questions and shrouds us with hopelessness. Senseless tragedies have a way of doing that, making life seem fragile and temporary, especially when the cause of death is due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence.
Common Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death can be caused from almost any type of accident, but some of the more common situations include:
- Car accidents
- Bus accidents
- Commercial truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
- Trip and falls or slip and falls
- Falls, and from falling objects
- Workplace accidents, especially in construction, industrial, and agricultural jobs
If you’ve lost a loved one in an injury accident, it’s not uncommon to feel angry and want to lash out at the wrongdoer. In our society, however, our civil legal system has equated monetary compensation with justice. While money cannot replace your lost loved one, it can provide the support your loved one would have provided to you over the rest of their natural lifetime.
Wrongful death cases typically garner some of the largest settlements and trial awards because they change lives forever. While many injuries heal or are adaptable, death is final. That person is gone forever and the at-fault party must pay for the grave damage they’ve caused.
Considerations When Determining Settlement Value
Awards can often be substantial as loved ones are able to be compensated for their:
- Loss of love, companionship, emotional support, guidance
- Lost income and support over a lifetime
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
- Value of household contributions
- And other items
